FAQs & DETAILS

Where should I start?

The Adult Education program has been structured to provide a beginner option for every interest; and any of our technical classes will meet you at your skill level. Our performance classes will indicate their level of difficulty.

If you have any questions about which class would be appropriate for you, feel free to reach out to our education department at (239) 434-7340 ext. 136 and we will be happy to assist you!

 

How often do sessions start?

Our classes follow a seasonal schedule:

  • FALL CLASSES run September–December with registration opening in late July or August
  • WINTER CLASSES run January–March with registration opening in November
  • SPRING CLASSES run March-May with registration opening in February
  • SUMMER CLASSES run June–August with registration opening in April.
Are classes different every session?

Yes! We offer different classes based on the shows in production, the availability of the staff, and the interests of our students, so if you see a class you like, make sure to sign up now!

How can I get involved in shows?

While auditioning for an upcoming mainstage TNP show is not explicitly part of the education program, our classes are built to prepare you for your starring role! We hold auditions 5-6 times a year for our mainstage plays and musicals.

See our Upcoming Auditions page for opportunities to take the spotlight!

We are also always looking for volunteers to help the shows shine in other ways! If you are interested in volunteering in our scene shop, costume shop, or backstage, feel free to reach out to our Director of Volunteers, Pamela Larkin-Caruso at 239-434-7340 ext. 104

 

What do classes cost?

Fees vary based on class length, type, and whether they are online or on-site.  Generally speaking, a 6-8 week class can vary between $100-$300 per session.  Need-based scholarships are always available thanks to our generous support from donors and grant programs.
